In the late 70’s, while studying Engineering at Brown I had the good fortune of taking a couple of introductory photography courses at the Rhode Island School of Design. There I learned my way around a B&W darkroom and the basics of composition. I shot film up until about 10 years ago when I finally started to play around with a digital point and shoot.  I haven’t done any work in a darkroom for years, but those early lessons in dodging and burning are still with me, as is my love for a beautiful black and white print. I am a Midwesterner by birth and upbringing, but I’ve lived in Atlanta since 1981, when I ventured south to further my education and pursue a career. Of course, I still can’t say I’m a Southerner, but I do now call the South my home.
